Posted on

Bluetooth and smart audio system are a dime a dozen nowadays, and lots of of them aren’t dangerous — so what it typically comes all the way down to is fashion. Native Union has my quantity with its newest device, which accentuates the basic bookcase speaker look with a tech-heavy again finish and brass volume knob.

It’s a collaboration with French audio outfit La Boite Idea (roughly, “idea field”), which presumably did the sound-specific parts of the speaker — that’s to say, the speaker — whereas Native Union introduced its understated design chops to the discount.

My iPhone SE proudly wore a Native Union case for a 12 months or so in good-looking cherry and brass, although the plastic elements finally broke down. This seems to be to be somewhat a extra strong building, however the design notes are the identical: a spotlight on pure supplies with slashes of metallic.

Inside is the amplifier and guts, after all, and in again a drawer hides the various inputs: two 3.5mm jacks, two USB, one USB-C. I’m unsure what number of of these you’ll find yourself utilizing concurrently, however it’s at all times good to have choices. Plus Bluetooth, after all.

I’ve requested for extra particulars, and I’m certain it’ll be online quickly. I do know it’s coming as a result of there’s a “audio system” nav on their website:

It’s a hell of a superb trying factor, however you recognize it comes at a price — $799. Sure, and also you’ll have to purchase it at MOMA shops in New York. Actually, now. Perhaps I’ll wait for a sale.
